Basic principles of Proton Therapy: how does it work?

Unlike traditional radiotherapy that uses photons to irradiate and kill tumor cells, proton therapy is an advanced form of treatment using protons. These particles give proton therapy its many advantages:
– Fewer radiation outside the tumor;
– Less side effects
– Lower risk of induced disorders;
– Better quality of life during and after cancer treatment.

Proton therapy is changing the way we treat cancer.
